[JUNE 27, 1863.



"RESOLVED, That, AS DEMOCRATS, we 'are determined to adopt no Affirmative Policy,' but merely to embarrass the Government by every means in our power, and especially by sympathizing with Traitors, and trying in every way to tie the hands of the President!"

"RESOLVED, That we base our claim to Popular Favor on the slowness and inefficiency of the Administration in putting down the Rebellion!"

Mrs. Ann S. Stephens's Last and Best.

BEADLE'S DIME NOVELS, No. 56, to issue June 20th, will complete a superb story of Frontenac's time, viz.:

Ahmo's Plot;

Or, The Governor's Indian Child.


One of the most novel, exciting, and effective of all of Mrs. Stephens's productions. It has in it enough of drama, character, and passion for three ordinary books. It must be read by all who love a brilliant and thoroughly composed historical romance.
